Radio XVI, side A, track 9: “Crush On You” by The Jets

The Jets - Crush On YouOh, The Jets, I know what you’re thinking.  I should have played this one yesterday.  After all, yesterday was Valentine’s Day, and what better song to commemorate teenage love than a song about a secret crush being revealed, much to one’s mortification?  But let’s be honest, The Jets, you know you kinda wanted him and/or her to find out about it.  After all, you told your best friend, who you already know talks when she should be listening.  We all know what you were doing, The Jets, you know exactly why you trusted her with all you felt inside, because you KNEW she was going to tell your crush.  Sure, you can act all embarrassed, but the only way you’d know if your crush was crushing back at you was if they knew you were crushing on them.  Of course, you could have just told them yourself, or once the word got out, instead of giggling all embarrassed-like behind your hands, you could have walked up to the object of your affection and been all like “So yeah, it’s true.  So now what?”  But we know you didn’t.  And also, there’s a better than 50% chance that your crush was actually mortified themselves by this knowledge getting out, and NOT because they secretly had a crush on you as well, but because the idea of you being together was horrifying to them.  Don’t deny it, The Jets!  You know that’s what happened!  What?  What do you mean, how would I know so much about it?  That’s beside the point, The Jets, let’s not confuse the issue here.  Oh, really?!?!  It sounds like I’ve had personal experience with this?!?!?  How dare you!  I don’t have to take this, The Jets.  Enjoy your awesome song, I’m walking off in a huff!

“Crush On You”

<awesome The Jets jam>

How did you know
‘Cause I never told
You found out

I’ve got a crush on you

No more charades
My heart’s been displayed
You found out

I’ve got a crush on you

You must have heard it
From my best friend

She’s always talkin’ when she should be listenin’

Can’t keep a secret
Ta save her life

But still I trusted her with all I felt inside

I never knew
A rumor
Could spread so fast

‘Cause now the
Word is out
All over town
That I’m longing for you

How did you know
‘Cause I never told
You found out

I’ve got a crush on you

No more charade
My heart’s been displayed
You found out

I’ve got a crush on you

<awesome The Jets jam>

Maybe I was the one who left the trace

Was there a message written on my face

Were my emotions
So easily read

That you would know my love before a word was said

Was it my eyes
That let you know you had control

Because the
Way you move
So self-assured
You knew I would surrender

How did you know
‘Cause I never told
You found out

I’ve got a crush on you

No more charade
My heart’s been displayed
You found out

I’ve got a crush on you

Oh oh oh oh ohhhh oh

Oh oh oh oh ohhhh oh

<awesome The Jets jam>

How did you know
‘Cause I never told
You found out

I’ve got a crush on you

No more charade
My heart’s been displayed
You found out

I’ve got a crush on you

You found out

I’ve got a crush on you

You found out

I’ve got a crush on you

Crush on you
